Pistol Squats

crossfit-monmouth-countyBillie is performing the pistol squat -one of the hardest exercises to perform! It’s a one legged squat that demands activation of your core and strength from just about every muscle in your lower body including your glutes, hamstrings and calves. Mastering and perfecting this move will give you GREAT legs and a nice butt too!

To perform the move:

Stand holding your arms straight out in front of your body and raise your right leg off the floor. Push your hips back and lower your body as far as you can. Pause, then push your body back to the starting position.

Billie is holding on to suspension straps here. That’s a great way to start practicing the move until you master it. This is a really hard move but the results are well worth the effort.


Speed And Agility Fun!

When it’s too hot to practice sports training outside, the littlest Jersey Shore athletes come to Ultimate Fit Zone for some indoor fun and skill training.  Our Monmouth County speed & agility program is tailored to your group of athletes and customizable to all ages and fitness level.  Our 3,000 square foot facility lined with real turf creates a fun and challenging environment to hone their athletic skills.

This is a great program to supplement ANY sport. The Speed and Agility training at UFZ in Ocean Twp (Monmouth County) can be conducted as an individual session or in groups. Speed & Agility Training Starts at $15 per athlete in groups of 3 or more.



Mastering the Dead Lift!

This week we had quite a few milestones at Ultimate Fit Zone.  Maria mastered the dead lift with a little bit of help from Coach Melissa, and Melissa herself pulled off a 1 rep max dead lift of 195 lbs!

The dead lift is an excellent exercise for women, when done properly, to work the glutes, hams and quads.  The movement is so comprehensive though that it also targets other muscles including your back, abs, obliques, forearms, calves and more. Many women shy away from the dead lift, and rightfully so.  Without the proper training and coaching for form, the dead lift can result in serious injury.  But when done correctly, this is one of our favorite moves at UFZ for sculpting the glutes and legs.

To join our training team, call Coach Melissa for more information.  We have a variety of group training for ALL ages and fitness levels.

King of All Lifts – The Deadlift

The deadlift is commonly called the King of All Lifts and that’s because it works an unprecedented amount of muscle groups in your upper and lower body and those in between.  Unfortunately, not many people incorporate this highly beneficial movement into their workout routine.  Most have either never been taught how to perform a deadlift, or they have performed it wrong in the past which resulted in injury.

The deadlift is an important move to master, not only for the sake of building muscle mass, but also for every day function as well.  If you’ve ever tried lifting something heavy off of the ground and hurt your back before, you’ll know how important it is to to strengthen the muscles in your arms, legs, abs and back.  Not only can the deadlift be an impressive tool in your fitness routine, it can also help prepare you for heavy lifting in every day life.

The deadlift works a variety of muscle groups from head to toe including:

  • Spine
  • Forearm
  • Gluteus Maximus (Butt)
  • Quadriceps
  • Calves
  • Hamstrings
  • Trap muscles (middle and upper)
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Abs
  • Obliques

Many people feel that the deadlift is a dangerous move that can result in injury.  Truth be told, we feel more injuries could be avoided if people would add the deadlift into their fitness routine.  Using excessive weight and improper form during this exercise can certainly result in injury, same as any other exercise.  That’s why at Ultimate Fit Zone we keep our group training sessions small, so we can give individual attention to everyone.  Mastering the deadlift will not only help you gain strength in your upper and lower body as well as muscle, it will also help you perform every day activities with greater ease.

Kids Boot Camp Fitness Program Starts March 12

Ultimate Kids Zone, a 5 week kids fitness program in Monmouth County begins March 12th at Ultimate Fit Zone.  The 5 week program encouraged kids ages 9 and up (age range is flexible) to develop speed, endurance, coordination and agility.  Additionally, kids develop leadership and teamwork skills.

Before the kids fitness program begins, each child will meet individually with our Kids Zone coach for an overall fitness assessment.  A few benchmark tests will be performed at that time (sit-ups, jumping jacks, etc) to determine their fitness level.  Parents are encouraged to come to provide additional information for each child.  During the next 4 weeks, Kids Zone participants will work on improving their bench mark scores with a series of drills, exercises and fitness protocols.  For the 5th week, each child will come back to meet one-on-one once again with their coach to re-do the bench mark drills and see where they have improved.

Cost per child is $79 for the 5 week program. Siblings of any child enrolled may join at a reduced rate of $59.

The Renegade Row

As usual, Bonnie is cranking up the intensity in her popular HEAT class.  Bonnie likes to perform moves that work multiple parts of the body at one time, and the renegade row does just that.  Using a combination of weights and your own body weight, the renegade row is one of the most comprehensive core exercises that also tones and develops muscles of your upper body.

The renegade row forces your body to engage your stomach muscles for stability, sculpting lean and defined abs in the process.

To perform the renegade row:

Place two dumbbells on the ground shoulder width apart.  Go into a plank position, hands on the dumbbells.

Hold your body steady as you lift one dumbbell off the ground, keeping your arm close to your body as your elbow draws back.  Lower that hand and repeat on the other side.
